Meanwhile, Ali Abdullah Saleh's son Khaled has been reported wounded and captured by the Houthi rebels from the Ansar Allah movement, Al Mayadeen said. Though he was deposed in 2012, he remained a key factor in the country's ongoing resistance to the Saudi-led, USA and British-backed war against the country, allying his forces with Houthi rebels.
Circumstances for the alleged death of Saleh, who was the leader of Yemen and its precursor Yemen Arab Republic for decades and cooperated with the US, were not immediately clear.
Since the bombing campaign against Yemen began in 2015, the United Kingdom has licensed roughly US$4.2 billion dollars in weapons to Saudi Arabia, according to PressTV.
Warfare between the erstwhile allies has torn densely populated Sanaa for days, with Houthi fighters seizing control of much of the capital and on Monday blowing up Mr Saleh's house.

Trump has threatened several times to withdraw from the Paris accord saying it is crippling United States business. The agreement pledges all countries to capping rises in global temperatures and to cutting carbon emissions.
Saleh ruled Yemen for more than three decades until he was forced to resign following an Arab Spring uprising in 2011, but remained as a key player in national politics and the subsequent civil war.
Saudi Arabia along with other Sunni Muslim countries intervened to reinstate the government of President Abd-Rabbu Mansour Hadi, who was ousted by the Houthis in 2014.
According to Al Arabiya, the GPC sources said that "Ali Abdullah Saleh was killed during clashes with the Houthis in the country's capital of Sana'a". The following day the Houthis began to dramatically reverse the Saleh loyalists' gains, however.
The United Nations said fighting and air strikes had intensified in Sanaa with roads blocked and tanks deployed on many streets, trapping civilians and halting delivery of vital aid including fuel to supply clean water. He remained in the country, however, and continued to wield political power from behind the scenes.
Which MLB Team Has the Best Shot at Landing Shohei Ohtani?
In 543 career innings on the mound, he's 42-15 with a 2.52 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 10.3 strikeouts per nine innings pitched. The Yankees were not the only team to learn they would not be in the running for Ohtani.
But they vied for supremacy over the territory they ran together, including Sanaa, which the Houthis seized in September 2014, and their feud burst into open combat on Wednesday.
Saleh's statement was dubbed "deception" by the Houthis, who were in alliance with the former President. Saudi Arabia views the Houthis as an Iranian proxy on its doorstep, and the rivalry between the two regional powers has amplified the conflict.
Ali Abdullah Saleh was sworn in as Yemen's President in 1990 following the merger of North and South Yemen.
Media sources, the Yemeni Ministry of the Interior and the Houthis have all reported that Saleh was killed today; his General People's Congress confirmed the claims later in the day. The Houthis appeared to be targeting the homes of Saleh's family, political allies and commanders in this most recent round of fighting.
